The plate set is made in Ureshino city (Saga prefecture), in the Hizen region, an area that straddles Saga and Nagasaki. The clear whitenes of Time & Style’s Hizen Yoshida ware is a result of utilizing Amakusa pottery stone, a porcelain ingredient produced in Amakusa (Kumamoto Prefecture). Great care is paid to the shaping and firing of the porcelain to produce thin, sharp lines and the moulds are made to accommodate the distortion and contraction of clay during the firing process.
